GC-132 Color Challenge is “Yellow and White”.

Boy this is a wonderful change from all the
Red’s of Christmas, and Oh So Needed!
I used a new stamp & emboss set from Hero Arts. It’s called Textured Impressions, and you get one cling mount stamp with matching embossing folder. 
This one is called Thankful #657768.
I wet embossed it with white embossing powder and then dry embossed the image.
Cut out the center, added my image. How easy is this?
Added a few brads and ribbon and punched daisy. I hope you will take a break from all the Red’s and join use in this challenge at Gingersnaps. 
It runs until Jan 22 2012.
Still gives you lots of time to get back into the Red’s of Valentines.
Thanks for your visit today.

Two Spellbinders dies were used,

Tim Holtz Pinecone die and embossing folder from Sizzix round out this card.

Quilt Batting Mittens

After seeing the wonderful “Mittens”, that were made and posted on Sugar Lump Studios 
I just had to try them. 
I don’t have the supplies that were posted, but did have a ton of left over quilting supplies.
Here are three that I made, with plans on doing more when time permits.
Hope you will enjoy them, and give this a try.
Thanks for stopping in today, remember only 20 days left!!
